Broward Sheriff's Advisory Council

The Broward Sheriff’s Advisory Council, Inc. (B.S.A.C.) is a Florida, non-profit 501 (C)(3) organization founded in 1975 by the late sheriff, Nick Navarro, and is funded by donations from its members and the community. Its members are men and women who are dedicated to supporting all first responders in Broward County.

Our mission is to provide financial assistance to the families of officers killed or disabled in the line of duty. In addition, we also help develop educational programs to assist and support the State of Florida in drug abuse prevention and crime prevention.

Financial aid given by the Broward Sheriff's Advisory Council takes on several forms depending on the needs of the surviving family. In many cases, the need is for immediate help to pay expenses such as rent, mortgage, food, utilities, and other household expenses that require a fast response. In other cases, funds are provided for college tuition through the Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program. In our 35 plus years, we have provided over $100,000 in scholarships to the surviving children of fallen Officers.

As individual advisory deputies, we are each personally dedicated to this goal.
